It's been a couple weeks since I last grabbed my camera and took some photos. I won't get into the combination of factors that kept me away, but it was good to get back into the groove. Unfortunately this wasn't a planned shoot so I was still in my work clothes so I couldn't venture out into the water or bring the tripod real low to try different compositions but I still have a few I like. As I was driving home, I saw some good cloud formations with the sun putting a narrow beam of light onto the water. I had no need to rush home so I turned towards the beach right outside the Torii Station Beach Gate and wondered over to these manmade concrete structures. I took these between 4:30pm - 5:15pm so it wasn't near sunset yet, but I knew the sunset was going to be a wash today. Therefore, from the beginning I knew these were going to be long exposure black and white photos; although some of the color images actually are of interest. I may put some of those up later. Today I'm posting the two best from the shoot today.
